Fiction Friday: Books I’m taking on Holiday…

Today I’m off to Florence for two weeks, in fact I’m writing this in the airport. Today I thought I’d show you the books I chose to bring with me for my trip. Even when I wasn’t reading a lot- holidays were the one time that I read more than any other time, probably because the lack of wifi. So picking holiday books is a nightmare. I want easy books, hard books, sad books, happy books. So…

I think I have all my bases covered. Shatter Me was a given since I’m doing a buddy read of it, and so was Lexicon* which I have been reading for about a week and is an incredible book.
My friend Aime demanded I take Uglies and when I asked on instagram, Lianne said I should take Flowers for Algernon that I hauled here, Game of Thrones and The Woman in Black.
I needed my dose of Tolkien so brought along The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. 
My brother is going to be around for the first week of my holiday so I had to bring John Dies at the End because he keeps telling me to read it.
I won The Ruby Slippers* and The Undertaking* from Goodreads and they’ve been calling to me ever since they arrived.
I Am Legend and Dolores Claiborne will cover any need I have for a scary read.
And The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and Muddle Earth cover any comedy needs.

And of course a guidebook. Times like these make me wish I had a kindle. 

Have you read any of these books? Do you have more restraint than I do when packing? 


*I won these from Goodreads, I’m not obligated to talk about them on my blog,
